Paris-based sound artist, Anton Mobin’s sound activities evolve in two parallel and complementary universes: improvised music and radio art.
In his creations diversion and manipulation of sound objects, trivial fragments and reorganization of reality are investigated in different ways. Anton Mobin develops his own methods of composition in which he experiments different constraints of place, time and also technical to produce a unique and personal radio art.

ANTON MOBIN & JD ZAZIE "Live at Das Kleine Field Recordings Festival", EARSHELTERING N°060
Cycles, loops, metallic thunder drones, electronic spasms and percussives manipulations. Anton Mobin & JD Zazie lead us to a storm center, where the silence is rhythmic - Sound dives in a torn silence - The coordinates are hidden from us and the rising soundscapes bring us where no men are never go, but where he should go. Enjoy it !
